Anand Mahindra offers job to 13-yr-old girl

In a heartwarming display of quick thinking and bravery, a 13-year-old girl from Basti district in Uttar Pradesh became an internet sensation. She ingeniously used Amazon's virtual voice assistant, Alexa, to fend off a monkey attack, ensuring her and her younger sister's safety. 

The girl cleverly commanded Alexa to imitate a dog's bark, a sound that scared away the intruding monkey.

The viral story caught the attention of billionaire Anand Mahindra, the Chairman of the Mahindra Group, who was so impressed by the girl's presence of mind and potential for leadership in unpredictable situations that he offered her a job.

"The dominant question of our era is whether we will become slaves or masters of technology. The story of this young girl provides comfort that technology will always  be an ENABLER of human ingenuity. Her quick thinking was extraordinary," Mahindra wrote.

"What she demonstrated was the potential for leadership in an entirely unpredictable world. After she finishes her education, If she ever decides to work in the corporate world I hope we at @MahindraRise will be able to convince her to join us!!" he added.
